Cyber security is something that needs to be integrated into every process today, including when it comes to recruitment. With the number of attacks on individuals and businesses continuing to increase it’s essential that any cyber security recruitment strategy goes beyond a traditional, office-based environment and includes the remote-working world in which we operate in today. These are some of the key factors to bear in mind when designing and implementing an effective strategy.

  • Every organization will be different. It’s just not possible to lift a strategy from one business and see it provide successful protection in another. Any cyber security recruitment strategy needs to be specifically tailored for an organization, including the way that it recruits and day-to-day operations.
  • Start with a clear appreciation of the risks. It’s essential for organizations to move away from compliance-focused security and to ensure that cyber security strategy and measures in place take into account the individual risks that an enterprise faces. This is a process that needs to start with an in-depth investigation into those risks, where they exist and what needs to be done to fix them.
  • Business-wide collaboration is essential. This isn’t a responsibility that should fall wholly to the IT team or those who are managing the process of recruitment. Collaboration is going to be essential right across the business, from inputting into strategy design to ensuring that all staff understand the systems they are using, including the potential vulnerabilities that they have.

  • Integrate the best possible technology. Any cyber security recruitment strategy will be more effective where it is supported by the right technology. Leading edge technologies not only help to ensure that the business can deliver on its recruitment objectives but that the impact of data breaches or security issues can be limited.
  • Redefine the way that data is handled. A lot of data can be collected and generated during the recruitment process and it’s vital to have a strategy in place to deal with this. Where the volume of data is high, one of the simplest approaches is to carry out an audit and prioritize data according to risk and value, as opposed to wasting resources prioritizing data that has no value.
  • Create more than one line of defense. Many businesses create a single defense where cyber security is concerned but it’s also essential to think beyond this to what might happen if that defense is breached. For example, if a password is stolen and security is breached as a result what is the next layer of defense in place?
  • Limit access to mission-critical infrastructure. One of the simplest ways to protect the most important enterprise infrastructure from cyber security risks is to ensure that the fewest people possible have access to it. Strong privileged asset management will ensure that vulnerabilities are not being unnecessarily created.

An effective cyber security recruitment strategy will ensure defenses remain strong and the business is protected while supporting effective hiring too.
